1.    What’s HSK
China's Han Yu Shui Ping Kao Shi, knownas HSK or the Chinese Proficiency Test is a standardized test at thestate level designed and developed by the HSK Center of BeijingLanguage and Culture University to assess the Chinese proficiency of non-nativespeakers (foreigners, overseas Chinese and students of Chinese nationalminorities).

Degree programs taught in Chinese requirestudents to have reached a certain level of Chinese language proficiency beforethey are admitted. This is to ensure that students are able to understandclasses, complete assignments and sit exams. Most universities ask thatapplicants pass the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) to a certain level as ameans of proving sufficient language proficiency. More information aboutthe HSK is outlined below.

HSK consists of the basic Chineseproficiency test (HSK Basic), the elementary and intermediate Chinese proficiencytest (HSK Elementary-Intermediate) and the advanced Chinese proficiencytest (HSK Advanced). HSK is held regularly in China and othercountries each year. Certificates of HSK will be issued to those who havesecured the required scores.

The new HSK test was launched by Hanban inan effort to better serve Chinese language learners. The test is the result ofcoordinated efforts by the experts from different disciplines including Chineselanguage teaching, linguistics, psychology and educational measurement. The newexam combines the advantages of the original HSK while taking intoconsideration the recent trends in Chinese language training by conductingsurveys and making use of the latest findings in international languagetesting.
